Money in the Market: Is it worth considering Asia investment grade credit as a standalone asset class?
Asia investment grade credit may set to benefit from both the end of the US hiking cycle and potential global economic slowdown, with structural demand likely from increasing investor interest. While markets are still divided on how severe the slowdown will be in the United States, Asia's economic cycle has diverged from developed markets. And this backdrop bodes well for Asia IG bonds, creating attractive opportunities. On Money in the Market, Hongbin Jeong speaks to Omar Slim, Co-Head of Asia ex-Japan Fixed Income at PineBridge Investments, to find out more about the opportunities Asia IG bonds can bring.

Money in the Market: Is it a good time to load up on investment-grade corporate bonds or high yield bonds?
A bond market signal that has shown warning signs for months suggests an economic recession could still be on the horizon.
According to data from Bloomberg, the 10-year and 3-month yield curve has been inverted for 212 straight trading days.
This is a record that just surpassed the 1980 inversion and is now the longest stretch since at least 1962.
The yield curve inverts when short-dated Treasuries offer a higher yield than longer-term Treasuries, a market anomaly that typically suggests a period of economic weakness is imminent.
A significant number of bond strategists polled by Reuters also indicated the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note yield has peaked in the current cycle.
What does this all mean for bond markets in the future?
